But an ambiguous or vague link demands a meaningful context (to be
understood at all), doesn't it?

If we expect users (for example, dyslexics) to have more or less serious
problems in grasping a specific context, ain't it further on necessary to
recommend clear and concise links which can be conceived (more) quickly?
